    Semi guilty. My wife has a brand new (in 2008) Day 6 comfort bike. To the very best of my knowledge and belief she has ridden it about three times, for a total of about 50 miles.

    I had 50 miles on my Xtracycle within the first week.

    FYI,DC is a very transitory town. People are constantly coming and going for school,internships,assignments,etc. Because of that we have a very robust used bike market. I'd hate to live where you do if your CL is nothing but fence operation/con job.

    I see your semi-guilt, and raise you: why not think of some nice date with your wife with a bikeable destination? Picnic in the park? Dinner & movie? Ride around a lake? Get her goin! A happy ride with a wife is a wonderful thing.
